new to duck hunting

Yes, definitely (ducks, Argentina) ... but I have to wait a bit - I'm flat broke. Give me at least a few months. (I think I may have done too much hunting and not enough work last fall.)

new to duck hunting

hello,
Yes it's Federal Law that no toxic shot be used for waterfowl hunting. For ducks we hunt lakes and ponds over decoys spred out in a U or V pattern pointed into the wind with us concealed in the cattails and reeds at the waters edge. Same thing for warm water sloughs when those lakes freeze over. For geese we hunt fields. I've never done pass shooting or jump shooting, but you'll want a full choke with #2 or #3 and modified choke for any shot larger than #2 for that if you plan to do that method. Use a 12 gauge. I like high velocity #2 steel for all ducks and T shot for geese. Modified choke works as a good overall and in close quartered small ponds or sloughs I use an improved cylinder. Your clothing should be either a camo pattern to match the area you plan to do 75% of your hunting in, or go with just plain drab colors that match the area like light brown, khaki OD, or tan clothing. Anything that will match the vegatation. Also try not to move around a whole lot, waterfowl have good eye sight and movement gives you away even if you are totally camo'd out.
